Frame it Real Good

This weekend means lots of progress! Aaron got all of his homework finished up on Friday, so Saturday and Sunday he can get stuff done!

First up? The sit-down-upon! Yes, that is what we are calling it 🙂 It is a seat that is right next to the front door so when you come in you can plop down and take your shoes off.(or curl up with a book if you grab a throw pillow!) There is storage in the seat for boots or other shoes too large to put in the hanging shoe holder which goes in the recess behind the seat. It also has a coat closet attached to it, so it does a lot of things in not a lot of space!

Aaron designed the whole thing and I think it turned out wonderfully!

You can see, that even once we panel everything, there is a pretty good chunk of storage in there!

Since the framing did not take long, we moved on to paneling the closet! The hardboard throws up a TON of very fine dust when cut with the circular saw, so we wore dust masks for most of the weekend. (UGH)

It was sweaty, dusty, and tiring work. I was happy to take a quick Village Life break! 😉

Now, if we wanted to play hide and seek in Avako, we have a whole 5 places to hide!

It seems that all of the action shots I have taken lately are of Aaron with the little brad nail gun, huh?

But we are putting that nailer to good use! We got the fridge wall paneled and the short wall next to it all set as well:

Lets hope next weekend is just as productive!
